Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Our family had a wonderful stay this week. The property was a paradise surrounded by beautiful mountains and the garden was filled with flowers.the hosts were a wonderful couple that made us so welcome and the breakfast was out of this world. Everything was freshly picked from the garden, berries, fruit, and even the eggs were from the neighboring farm, fresh! Juices, jams , you name it, everything was freshly made beautifully. A super five star experience! The H Chang family

We came across this wonderful place by accident booking last minute during our travels in NZ, so lucky! and decided to book an extra night because we loved it so much! Danny and Mable are the loveliest hosts who helped us with our planning activities and spoiled us rotten. The breakfast is absolutely amazing: Mabel makes beautiful creations with fruit and delicious dishes with local products, avocado and flowers from her own garden. Their personal touch makes this B&B an absolute highlight and we definitely recommend to stay if given the chance. Many thanks!!

What a lovely place to stay! Danny and Mabel, the owners, live on the property and are both highly trained hoteliers and they sweat the details. The breakfasts were lovely and tasty, the rooms immaculate, and the garden was gorgeous. It’s about a 15 minute drive to Rotorua, but no big deal as most attractions are not within walking distance. The town itself is kind of blah, so do yourself a favor and stay with Danny and Mabel at the Country Villa Estates. The high rating is well deserved.

It's not often the beautiful view from your accommodation matches the charm & hospitality of your hosts. Country Villa Estate is definitely one of those properties. Hosts Maude & Danny are wonderful people, well travelled with a strong hospitality background, they are truly welcoming of all guests to their beautiful home. Maude is an amazing chef & artist who, with the help of barista Danny, creates a delicious, beautifully presented breakfast each morning. We stayed 3 nights in the upstairs family suite so were fortunate to have our own tea room looking out at the well maintained garden. It was very clean & comfortable, with tea & coffee & bathroom amenities provided. There are plenty of resting places outside on the veranda or in the gardens or you can utilise the indoor lounge. If you are very lucky you may find yourself enjoying a conversation with Danny or Maude, two of the nicest people you could hope to meet.

You couldn't find more graceful hosts than Danny and Mable. As a solo female traveler who experienced some mishap on my visit to Rotorua, both of them were a great support system and went beyond even the extra mile. I can't thank them enough. Their B&B is situated in the hills above town, in a quiet pastoral area, with a magnificent garden full of flowers and different private areas to relax. The house is historic and Mable and Danny display many of the treasures they picked up during their world travels. The 4 themed bedrooms have super comfortable beds and are set up to make your own coffee/tea. The hallway has a fridge for the guests and little chocolate treats are to be found everywhere. There is also a guest living room to enjoy (and watch TV). And even more than that ... breakfast is on a whole other level. While the round kitchen table holds all manner of muesli, granola, jams, juices, and yogurts, and while there is also the choice of a warm breakfast ... the extra surprise each morning is Mable's fruit creation. Words cannot describe those! Danny is an excellent barista and a fountain of knowledge about the area and many other places both in NZ and the world. I cannot recommend Country Villa Estate and its hosts highly enough!

Danny and Mable were absolutely brilliant and courteous hosts when we stayed. All of the rooms available are very cosy and lovely to stay in. Whilst there, they provided a delicious and very filling breakfast. It’s a gorgeous villa with stunning views and a serene environment. It’s also a very short distance from the town and some of the hot springs that Rotorua has to offer.

I’ve stayed at the Country Villa three times already and all visits have been absolutely amazing! Danny and Mable are incredible hosts and make you feel at home! The rooms are very comfortable and the house is beautiful and historic. They’re a quick drive to all the attractions in Rotorua and still offer the calm and quiet of being far away enough from the town! I deeply recommend this property as one of the best BnBs in Rotorua!
